April Photo A Day
Somewhere in the middle of March I discovered the March Photo a Day Challenge hosted by Chantelle at Fat Mum Slim. I’m not sure when she first did this but it seems to have become a regular monthly thing beginning with January of 2012.
Every month Chantelle posts a list of subjects or prompts for each day of the month.
This was the list for March and the challenge instructions.
Here's how to play:
1. Use the list above as inspiration and take a photo everyday. For example for number one on the list, 'your view today' you'd take a shot of whatever it is that you can see today. This would be a wider shot of your office space, where you went for a walk, or whatever it is that you can see!
2. Share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, your blog or where ever it is you want to share. If you're sharing on Instagram or Twitter use the hashtag #FEBphotoaday so everyone can find them. There's a great community around the photo sharing, so do share!
3. Check out everyone else's pictures. I do it before I go to bed each night and it's so fun to see how different everyone's photos are. There are people from every corner of the world playing.
I started seeing photos posted on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram and got curious and was definitely interested once I figured out what the #marchphotoaday hashtag was all about. It definitely sounded like fun and something I wanted to try. I have been playing along unofficially since the middle of the month but not making any effort to post the photos anywhere but on Instagram.
Here are a few of the photos I took for March.

Beginning April 1st I plan to participate fully. I will be posting the daily photos on my Tumblr blog which can be found at Whimpulsiveness There are always links to the most recent posts on that blog from here (look over there on the far right sidebar below the Powells logo where it says “Whimpulsiveness”. If you choose to subscribe directly to the Tumblr blog you can do so right here: Subscribe to my Tumbler Blog
I chose to post the photos on Tumblr for a couple of reasons. First of all I didn’t want to clutter up this blog with multiple posts per day, Secondly I’m going to do this with only photos from my phone because it’s easy to take and post them that way. It also takes the pressure to spend too much time perfecting a photo when I’m just using the phone.
Here is the list of prompts for April. Some will be easy, some are a bit more challenging.
I hope you’ll check out my results over at Whimpulsiveness and would love to see more people I know participate. If you want to join in the fun head on over to this post and sign up.
